"Photography salespeople should have experience in photography"
a pretty broad overview of the many many careers one can have in the world of photography. From small time protrait photographers to press photographers who, yes, run from one job to another with a little piece of paper in their hat that says 'press!' Other careers are discussed, from taking the picture to developing, motion picture work, to heck, even how the camera works. Pretty average.

Reasonable survey of post WWII careers in photograhpy: portraits, news, commercials, cinema, darkroom... pretty ordinary. Doesn't oversell the career nor dismiss it ... but for photography professionals, it's not that well made.
